CRESTON, Iowa — Allies of Sen. Bernie Sanders railed against a Democratic National Committee rules change that was announced on Friday and framed it as an attempt to boost billionaire presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg. 

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore brought up the change at a Sanders campaign town hall at Iowa’s Southwestern Community College where he spoke along with the independent Vermont senator’s wife, Jane Sanders. Moore suggested the rules change could have been made because Bloomberg promised to give money to the DNC. 

“I’d like to hear full transparency from the DNC and tell us how much he has offered to give in the November election if they let him on the stage,” Moore said of Bloomberg. “I just think this is what we’re so used to on our side where people that are supposed to be on our side end up being for the people with the money.”

Xochitl Hinojosa, the communications director of the DNC, told Yahoo News “there was not” a promise of any donation from Bloomberg. She also had harsh words for Moore. 

“This is outrageous. These conspiracy theories divide our party. Our criteria reflects the actual votes in two states and broad support through polling. Period,” Hinojosa said.
